But I've always struggled with weight, as I am the type of person that could look at food and gain weight. After doing a bit of research online and liking what I was reading, I ventured and got their 2 pack with Vanillla and Chocolate Brownie. I have been at it for a month and week now and my body fat has decreased from double to single digits and I am continuing to add lean muscle mass from a diet high in protein and fats. I did add a tsp. I found it best to mix right before drinking, gets a little thick is mixed ahead of time.
I drink another brand only because my doctor suggested for me but did try this one and have to agree the taste of a rich dark chocolate is present. Like my brand this one is an 11oz bottle and goes down quickly. We use a smaller diameter straws to drink from which gives the impression that the drink last longer. Great Flavor This is the only flavor I will drink and its hard to find in stores anymore!!
I replace my morning coffee and breakfast all in one bottle!! Btw Ive lost 40 pounds with these shakes and vigorous exercise since Nov !! I've been buying this for years and love it for a quick meal I don't know what was changed with the Slim Fast Cappuccino Delight.
The bottle is different, and the taste is different. In fact there is little flavor at all. It's almost like drinking water. It's always been good in the past, but something has changed and not for the better. It's a lot of money for something with no taste.
I hope next time I will get the previous version. It arrived a couple days after i ordered it. I got the vanilla, as i figured i could always add unsweetened cocoa powder to it, if i wanted chocolate. I use it as my breakfast alternative.
The taste is great, and it doesn't taste overly, chalky. I add half a banana, a handful of blueberries, a tablespoon or two of yogurt depending on how thick and creamy you want your smoothie , a handful or two of cubed ice, and a teaspoon or tablespoon of unsweetened cocoa powder depends on how chocolatey you want. Blend good, and voila! I only gave 4 stars; because i thought this would keep me a little fuller, until after lunch.
To my dismay my favorite brand ranked among the worst offenders. I found this one, which costs less and tastes as good. Add to that the fact that Nature's Bounty is a trusted brand, I found it easy to order and it has come to replace my former brand. The clean label project gives this powder good marks. Very chalky taste after wards 2.
Not very thick as other shakes PROS: Because of the nutrional fact, will aid in weight loss if the individual eats and exercise right.
Good meal replacement 5. Keeps you full Will I continue to buy? YES because it only cost 10 bucks, will help to lose weight!! Most of the reviews where about the flavor and many reviewers just said great. I want to be more specific than that First let me say, I am not being paid or compensated in any way for writing this review of Ideal Lean, French Vanilla.
I want to be more specific than that. I am 71 years old and have gone through a lot of stress and depression, not to mention I deal with Skin Cancer and sadly, for about 3 years I pretty much neglected my body.
But have been slowly taking the weight off, with other brands of Whey Protein, and Fat burners, they worked for a time. Then this year, during my yearly physical, it showed I was border line Type 2 Diabetes.
Great taste for only 80 calories especially good with Great taste for only 80 calories especially good with 8 oz of unsweetened vanilla almond milk. This is a god-send if you are trying to lose weight, if you want a pre- or post- workout protein, or if you simply are very busy and need a quick meal. Awesome product I actually ordered this product directly off their website as it was cheaper. After doing a bit of research online and liking what I was reading, I ventured and got their 2 pack with Vanillla and Chocolate Brownie.
I actually am reordering today another 2 pack as I am now on my end of my last tubs. Flavor is great, even a tad bit on the sweet side sometimes and I am a sweets person!! At night before I go to bed, when I get hungry again or am craving sweets, I like to do a chocolate brownie and it satisfies my craving and hunger.
I find the chocolate shakes taste wonderful and not chemical I've used these HMR shakes on several occasions to lose about pounds. First found them as part of a medically supervised weight loss program 20 years ago. I find the chocolate shakes taste wonderful and not chemical.
I use 70 Plus because I am lactose-intolerant. I mix them with milk and a few ice cubes and to me they taste like the Frosty's at Wendy's! I like that they are only calories and I've already lost 8 pounds! Taste great and good weight loss tool, but the new box has got to go I use these shakes to lose weight and to maintain.
I currently use per day. After 25y of blending and shaking, I've come up with the perfect double recipe for me: Strain the water into another shaker bottle. Add two packets and shake. I think that the super-cooled water makes the product taste much better. I've used a blender in the past, but this is soooo much easier and makes a shake that is easier to drink than one that is blended with ice. I'd have given the product 5 stars except for one thing: So I'm getting g of sugar a day just from these shakes.
I'll do a 1 week turbo orders the bars as well to give me that system boost to continue. Using the 2 items for 1 week, I didn't feel like I was missing anything. Cheaper than in Nutrisystem! Very good, good price for the package. Four Stars Pretty good for a shake you mix with water and a little ice. I have been using Slim Fast for several months.
The milk shakes taste good, and they do take away hunger for about 5 hrs. I have been eating one meal a day, usually at dinner, and have put myself on a calorie diet. I have to up the calorie intake when I am very active around the house or in the yard. I have lost 10 lbs. My goal is to lose 40 lbs.
I do count my calories when eating a meal. I do not deprive myself of desserts completely. I will usually eat to small bites of cake, pie, donut or whatever dessert is around. I figure out the calories roughly in those bites and include them into my daily meal. It prevents binge eating. As someone who never eats breakfast and then ends up snacking all night or having a way-too-late mega meal, this is perfect!
I purchased the Creamy Chocolate, and I mix it with 8oz unsweetened almond milk calories total. When I first tried it I was gladly surprised it did not have an artificial taste, it wasn't gritty, and even better, it kept me full well into the afternoon, so I wouldn't end up snacking like crazy of having a large meal later on. It tastes very good and I enjoyed drinking it It tastes very good and I enjoyed drinking it. The only thing I don't like about it is that, just shaking it in a shaking glass or even with a spoon, I can't get it to dissolve completely.
I'm guessing if you use a blender it would be okay. Terrible with water Terrible with water, better with milk. I found it best to mix right before drinking, gets a little thick is mixed ahead of time. Best tasting shake I've tried so far with no side effects!
I really enjoy this! I have tried just about every meal replacement shake there is and most of them either taste gross or I get really nauseous after drinking them. These are really tasty and I enjoy drinking them. I bought the Dutch Chocolate and the Cookies and Cream. Both are good but I prefer the Chocolate.
It definitely tastes best blended with ice instead of just shaken. The only thing I would say is watch your calorie count when adding stuff to it because it's easy to get out of control without realizing it.
I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk, 2 scoops Herbalife powder, 2 TBS sugar free jello pudding mix and ice and blend away. It's really thick and creamy with no nasty after taste like some of the protein shakes.
I tried Shakeology and immediately loved the meal replacement concept for lunch I tried Shakeology and immediately loved the meal replacement concept for lunch. I told the nutritionist that I was specifically looking for meal-replacement and I don't really have any fitness goals, and he pointed me to this Labrada product. I originally tried the mixed pack of strawberry, vanilla, and chocolate but I don't love the vanilla flavor and I've never been a huge fan of chocolate.
For now, I'm sticking with strawberry only. I mix my strawberry packet with 8 oz of OJ and 4 oz of water in a blender bottle, and it tastes like a smoothie to me I honestly have no problems with the taste of this powder.
Labrada makes some of the better tasting and higher quality meal replacements Labrada makes some of the better tasting and higher quality meal replacements, and this is no exception. I love that I essentially get a refund on this purchase in the form of sample credits.
Be sure to check integrity of packets inside I have had these for years. Mix with skim milk and a banana. Last box most of the packets were leaking. One had a one inch gap at the top.
The product all over the box and the other packets. A few small black bugs in the box. The box was not smashed. Must have been packaged wrong. Ordered a replacement to see if any better. Great nutrition and very tasty I'm impressed with this product because it does not have a lot of sugars in it, it does have 30 grams of protein, and it's tasty enough to be considered "dessert-y".
I'm taking a bunch with me on vacation for at least one meal substitute a day, should help keep me on the straight and narrow clean and lean? I feel less anxious about the effects of a vacation week on my eating plan. What do you have to lose? Get your free diet analysis. Just simply enter your height, weight, and gender.

This conversion requires naturally occurring enzymes in the body.
Side effects are not uncommon, as prohormones can also convert further into DHT and estrogen. To deal with this, many supplements also have aromatase inhibitors and DHT blockers such as chrysin and 4-androstene-3,6,trione.
To date most prohormone products have not been thoroughly studied, and the health effects of prolonged use are unknown. Although initially available over the counter, their purchase was made illegal without a prescription in the US in , and they hold similar status in many other countries. They remain legal, however, in the United Kingdom and the wider European Union.
Their use is prohibited by most sporting bodies. Creatine is an organic acid naturally occurring in the body that supplies energy to muscle cells for short bursts of energy as required in lifting weights via creatine phosphate replenishment of ATP. A number of scientific studies have shown that creatine can improve strength,  energy,  muscle mass, and recovery times. In addition, recent studies have also shown that creatine improves brain function.
Creatine increases what is known as cell volumization by drawing water into muscle cells, making them larger. Creatine is sold in a variety of forms, including creatine monohydrate and creatine ethyl ester , amongst others.
Though all types of creatine are sold for the same purposes, there are subtle differences between them, such as price and necessary dosage. Creatine monohydrate is regarded as a necessity by most bodybuilders.
Creatine monohydrate is the most cost-effective dietary supplement in terms of muscle size and strength gains. This can be accomplished by mixing powdered creatine with grape juice, lemonade, or many high glycemic index drinks. Some studies have suggested that consumption of creatine with protein and carbohydrates can have a greater effect than creatine combined with either protein or carbohydrates alone.
The inhibition of exercise-induced skeletal muscle damage by HMB is affected by the time that it is used relative to exercise. Meal replacement products MRPs are either pre-packaged powdered drink mixes or edible bars designed to replace prepared meals. MRPs are generally high in protein, low in fat, have a low to moderate amount of carbohydrates, and contain a wide array of vitamins and minerals.
Some MRPs also contain flax oil powder as a source of essential fatty acids. MRPs can also contain other ingredients, such as creatine monohydrate , glutamine peptides, L-glutamine , calcium alpha-ketoglutarate , additional amino acids, lactoferrin , conjugated linoleic acid , and medium-chain triglycerides. A sub-class of MRPs is colloquially known as "weight gainers", which are meal replacement products with a higher carbohydrate: Whereas a MRP will typically have a 0.
A thermogenic is a broad term for any supplement that the manufacturer claims will cause thermogenesis , resulting in increased body temperature, increased metabolic rate, and consequently an increased rate in the burning of body fat and weight loss.
Until almost every product found in this supplement category comprised the " ECA stack ": However, on February 6, the Food and Drug Administration FDA banned the sale of ephedra and its alkaloid , ephedrine, for use in weight loss formulas.
Several manufacturers replaced the ephedra component of the "ECA" stack with bitter orange or citrus aurantium containing synephrine instead of the ephedrine. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
